LA MONTANITA

$20.95$104.75

We are happy to be bringing back coffee from La Montanita for the second year in a row.  This year being a new and exciting variety for us, Macacaturra, a hybrid variety consisting of Caturra and Maragogype. The unique characteristics of these varieties show themselves both in how the roasted coffee looks and the flavor profile it achieves. Maragogype is known for its enormous size and unique cup characteristics. Caturra is known to have high levels of sweetness and a creamy body. The combination of these varieties brings great flavor diversity with a rich sweet backbone.

The La Montanita farm is being run by Jaime Blandon Rivera, who shows immense passion and dedication to producing excellent coffees.  Jaime has been working in coffee for seven years and has endeavored to get 80% of his production to be sold into the specialty market.  He believes with favorable growing conditions and hard work in the post-harvest processing, he can achieve his dream.

We are tasting grapefruit, clementine, white grape, fresh hops, and brown sugar, and the way these flavors are layered is amazing to us. You get all the aspects of a bright, complex, and clean coffee when it first hits your mouth, but it follows with a rich, deep sweetness that stays with you until the next sip.
